Choosing foods balanced in certain nutrients will ensure that your body gets what it needs to function better. Balanced nutrition includes eating enough protein, fiber, carbohydrates, good fats and vitamins and minerals. Many people diet to lose weight and be “healthier”. What most are unaware of is that diets actually hurt you more than help you in the long run. The results may be immediate on the outside, but promoting caloric restriction actually causes more muscle loss than fat loss. This lack of balanced nutrition leaves the body in a weakened state, and when the person inevitably stops dieting, they will gain back all of the lost weight plus more. This can carry on in a cycle known as diet-induced obesity, and spirals out of control quickly. Dieting in general is calorie restriction, which will slow down your metabolism, making it more difficult to burn calories and lose weight. The body will automatically begin to store fat when a noticeable amount of calories is removed from the daily diet.
The only real way to lose weight in a healthy manner is by a complete lifestyle change. It can be done gradually, and the results will be immediate, leaving you feeling better overall so that you can continue to work towards your goals.
